youtube2internearchive contained a script which also handled upload to Internet Archive, but I can't find it any longer. --Nemo 06:28, 26 January 2015 (EST)

I've found something with Google. bzc6p (talk) 12:25, 26 January 2015 (EST)


Is it really necessary to explicitly call best A/V when youtube-dl it by default?

Also, why not embed the subs and thumbnail instead of make a separate file? Also why not xattrs for those of us with unix filesystems? Xattrs is only one extra flag.

My command is currently

youtube-dl -t --embed-subs --add-metadata --xattrs --console-title --embed-thumbnails

although I'm going to be incorporating elements from the suggested one into mine. The reasoning behind this is it's one file to send. That command is how I archive currently, it's changing though.

I'd appreciate hearing your input about why I may be wrong though. Thanks in advance,

On your second note, I strongly believe it's better to have different things (video, thumbnail, subtitle) in separate files. Easier to access, process, categorize, recognize. I think it's worth the "trouble" of having three files (with the same name) instead of one.

xattrs are not portable and will get lost when copying to a file system that doesn't have them (or when uploading it somewhere, like to IA) --Darkstar 08:53, 31 May 2015 (EDT)
